There is a high demand for Park shelters so don't wait to reserve your date!

Reservation Lottery System
A number lottery system has been instated to ensure fairness for the patrons wishing to reserve the more popular shelters and summer weekend dates. Numbers will be drawn beginning at 7:30a.m., and in-person reservations will begin at 8:15a.m. Phone-in reservations will begin at 11:00a.m. Because of the lottery system, it will not be in anyone's best interest to arrive at the Madison Parks office before 7:00a.m.
Long-standing annual special events will be reserved in advance of the Park Shelter reservation date. Those 2011 event dates will be posted on the Madison Parks website by November 5, 2010 for the 2011 season.
